Baltimore Orioles trade deadline grades

The Baltimore Orioles made a flurry of transactions right before the traded deadline ended on Friday. Their two biggest moves were trades that brought much needed outfield depth to Baltimore. The biggest trade for the Os was acquiring outfielder Gerardo Parra from the Milwaukee Brewers in exchange for young pitcher Zack Davies. The addition of the veteran Parra fills the giant void...

Jones, Machado HRs rally Orioles past Tigers 8-7

BALTIMORE (AP) Adam Jones and Manny Machado homered, and the Baltimore Orioles rallied from a six-run deficit to beat the trade-ravaged Detroit Tigers 8-7 Friday night. Down 6-0 in the fourth inning, the Orioles teed off against the pitching-poor Tigers and went ahead 7-6 in the sixth when Machado hit a two-run drive off rookie Jose Valdez (0-1), making his big league debut.

Baltimore Orioles acquire Parra and Lake, trade Hunter

It was a very busy July 31st for the Baltimore Orioles, as they made a pair of trades at the trade deadline to improve the club. Many fans were disappointed by the team’s idleness prior to Friday afternoon, when they finally made a few moves. First, the Orioles traded minor league pitching prospect Zach Davies to the Milwaukee Brewers in exchange for outfielder Gerardo Parra, who...

Gerardo Parra: Changed Man?

Here’s one way to figure the Orioles did well in adding rental Gerardo Parra on Friday — so far this year, he’s recorded a 140 wRC+. That ties him with Todd Frazier for 22nd overall, and it puts him also in the company of names like Albert Pujols and Manny Machado. You don’t have to […]

Brewers deal hot-hitting Parra for Orioles' pitching prospect Davies

BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Orioles have obtained left fielder Gerardo Parra from the Milwaukee Brewers in a trade for a minor league right-hander Zach Davies. The deal was reached hours before Friday's non-waiver trade deadline. The 28-year-old Parra batted .328 with nine homers and 31 RBIs in 100 games this year. He's hitting .279 over 6-plus seasons, most of them with Arizona....

Baltimore Orioles looking for outfield help

The Baltimore Orioles have wanted to add some better production in the outfield and some starting pitching help for most of the season. Right now they have sent their sights on a few outfielders that can help them chase down the New York Yankees. The Orioles are rumored to be working on a deal to pick up Gerardo Parra from the Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday night. Parra is in the...

Chris Tillman continues to show Orioles can count on him

It is July 30th, and the Baltimore Orioles’ Opening Day starter, Chris Tillman has an 8-7 record and a 4.35 ERA. Uh oh, right? Well, not exactly. Last night, Tillman turned in his third consecutive outstanding start following the All-Star break. In his three starts against the Detroit Tigers, Tampa Bay Rays, and Atlanta Braves, the tall right-hander has allowed just one earned...

Chris Davis should move back to first base for the Baltimore Orioles

On June 26th the Baltimore Orioles moved Chris Davis to right field after a recent call up of Chris Parmelee due to some injuries in the corner outfield positions and some mediocre production as well. While Parmelee started to hit a little bit, it made sense to keep him up in the big leagues and Buck Showalter made the moves necessary to insure his team’s success. Chris Davis moved...

Baltimore Orioles trying to figure out what to do with Chris Davis

In 2013 Chris Davis led all of Major League Baseball in homeruns and RBIs. In 2014 it wasn’t the same. Davis is one of those players who can leave you in awe or frustration at just about any point in the season, which is why no one should be surprised that he may hold the key to which way the Baltimore Orioles turn in the next five days. Davis is suddenly on fire, he entered Sunday...

Is acquiring Chris Davis a good idea for the Cardinals?

According to my twitter follower @CubsCardsCast, MLB analyst Jim Bowden mentioned on satellite radio this morning that the St. Louis Cardinals could be a landing spot for Baltimore slugger Chris Davis. Is this plausible? What would it take? Is this a good idea? Let’s dig into the conversation on this Sunday morning. As I gulp the coffee, we run. Is it plausible? Sure it is. The...

Ariel Miranda could be diamond in the rough for Orioles

When the Baltimore Orioles announced the signing of Cuban-born left-handed pitcher Ariel Miranda (no, not the star of Pretty Little Liars) in late May, there was very little information available on the 26-year-old from Havana. Over seven seasons in Cuba’s Serie Nacional, Miranda posted a 3.78 ERA in 386.0 innings. His Cuban ERA was lifted quite a bit by the first four seasons...

Orioles celebrate Cal Ripken with Fielder’s Choice brew

Orioles' Manny Machado gets knocked down by fake throw (VIDEO)

Manny Machado had to laugh at himself after he awkwardly tumbled to the ground early in the Orioles 3-2 loss to the Yankees at Yankee Stadium on Tuesday. When Orioles third baseman Jonathan Schoop took the relay throw from the outfield and considered going home with the ball, Machado appeared as if he was looking for a cutoff from Schoop, who was only a few feet from him....

Outfielders available for Orioles, but do they have enough to make a deal?

A six-game stretch shouldn’t make or break a MLB team’s season. But front offices might place some added importance on games this close to the July 31 trade deadline, as they could determine whether or not a club should try to add pieces or sell them off. The Baltimore Orioles are in that sort of precarious spot beginning this week. With three games at the Yankees, followed by...

Baltimore Orioles trade rumors: Plan of attack

The Baltimore Orioles ended the first half of the season the same way they started it, with a .500 record. The Orioles have been missing the synergy from past seasons and can’t seem to get everything to mesh together at the same time. However, the Orioles have not been playing poorly and are still very much in contention for a playoff spot. Making moves in free agency could provide...

Baltimore Orioles Slugger Chris Davis Must Have Angered the Baseball Gods

If you are looked upon as a slugger that means people expect you to hit home runs. They don't want to see you get a bunch of singles or doubles and don't expect you to get many triples (because sluggers are usually bigger guys that are not real fast). Normally, Baltimore Orioles Chris Davis is pretty good at hitting the long ball. Just not lately. He's had one in July and 19 on the...
